Re: EVENT CARDS

Getting back to the main event, the battle, the strategies and the mechanics.... I was very pleased that with the exception of Commanded Shot and Highlanders , everything else produced little or no rule query/anomaly/disputes.

Re: EVENT CARDS

Hi Gents, Even though I never took part in the game at Derby, reading some of the comments by those who did take part, especially Jim, it sounds as though the game was run by the event cards and not the players themselves. I have to agree with Jim, how can a regiment run out of ammo when it hasn't ...

Re: Derby October Grand Alliance/WSS

Just wanted to add that I had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend again. Figures were excellent, gaming was superb, and the company was just spot on. First game on Saturday morning was a laugh, cards were a bit over the top in the first game but it had the desired effect of breaking us all in I think.......

Re: PARTIZAN PIX League of Augsburg

As an aside.....heard a couple of chaps referring to O'Briens regiment as "The Yorkies" but never got a chance to ask them where they got that particular nickname. Tried looking through my sources and googling online but no luck. Anybody got any ideas??? Cheers Gerry They're not for girls? :lol: Ni...

Re: The Battle of Catraeth at Partizan today

This was a great looking game. Andy Milligan and I were well impressed with it.

Who eventually got the most Glory and had their tales of derring do told by the poets for centuries to come?? :D

Re: Blenheim OOB

Many Thanks for that. :)

Re: Blenheim OOB

Hi Ray,

Couple of questions regarding Hays Dragoons. Firstly, why are they referred to as Hays Dragoons? And secondly were they not the 4th Dragoons at the time of Blenheim??

Would be interested to know the sources that you're using

Cheers

Gerry
